Liam,

I can only echo the sadness so many others here have expressed. I'm on the East Coast and don't have much to recommend in the way of support systems out there, but it seems many excellent suggestions have been posted here. I hope you can find help and solace and peace in exploring them.

So sorry for your news. My thoughts are with you.

GC

Difficult -- but now you get to be a saint and help.

It's also hard knowing there's danger but not the schedule. We all can die any time, and all make that trip sooner or later, but it easy to forget in common day-to-day living.

Cheer up music is tricky. I must have heard "Hello Goodbye" hundreds of times before I noticed "I Can Stay 'Til It's Time To Go"

Many of Garcia's songs are tough but facing the music just when we need some honesty. I just relived some of my own losses a bit now, and "Crazy Fingers" from Allah and "Not Fade Away/Goin' Down the Road Feeling Bad" from Skull&Roses stick. They end with an air of victory.

Dear Liam - Words fail in times like these.

You and your wife are in the thoughts and prayers of my family.
